What is ginseng?
Although the fleshy root has witnessed a recent rise in popularity, it has been used in traditional Chinese medicines for centuries. The English word ‘ginseng’ is derived from the Chinese word rénshēn, which translates to ‘plant root’. The Chinese translation refers to the forked root of the ginseng plant, which resembles a person’s legs. Besides being an energy stimulant and a herbal tea staple, ginseng is a powerful ingredient for hair care. Find out 3 ways in which the ingredient can boost your hair care routine.
Prevents hair loss
Ginseng is believed to increase the dermal cells on the scalp which, in turn, strengthens the follicles and roots of the hair. This not only encourages the new growth of strands but also prevents hair thinning and breakage.
Stops dandruff in its tracks
If it is those unsightly white flakes that are getting you down, ginseng just might be your answer. The root is high in Saponin, an anti-bacterial compound, which will sweep away dandruff from the scalp and prevent it from reoccurring. This ensures that your follicles stay clean and flake-free.
Restores nourishment from within
Thanks to its nourishing capabilities, ginseng is a herbal plant that helps both, the roots and lengths of the hair. The simplest way to make the best of this coveted ingredient is by getting your hands on the TRESemmé Botanique Detox & Restore Shampoo and Conditioner. This range combines the magic of ginseng with neem to create a botanical blend like none other. It cleanses the scalp of build-up and restores cuticles from the brink of damage to get manageable, nourished tresses.
